I love taking pictures of my family! I actually enjoy taking pictures of a lot of things and have had a passion for photography since I was a kid. I take a majority of the pictures I snap with my phone because it is always close by and one thing I really miss is having my pictures printed like I did before digital cameras took over. This last week I have been playing with a new photo app that is FREE that allows you to safely store + share your pictures and videos with your friends and family.
I LOVE using my phone to capture all those important moments and milestones! I normally have at least a couple thousand photos on my phone and will end up moving them to my external drive to save space. With the new TreeRing Memories photo app organizing those memories you capture and sharing them is EASY! You simply upload photos from your device, Instagram or Facebook to your TreeRing feed and let the app organize the photos by date for you.
One thing I really like about this photo app is the ability to upload photos from Facebook since I have posted most of my favorite memories I have captured there in almost the last decade. It was fun uploading pictures of my son who I have been posting pictures of since he was born and then being able to see them sorted by his age. The app also allows you to document milestones so you can incorporate them into your child’s books to keep forever.
If you are like me and like to see your memories printed there is also an option to create and PRINT memory books too! These are great to make for yourself but they make the PERFECT gifts for family members like grandma and grandpa that might not get to see their grandchildren growing up. You can choose to SHARE your memories you upload with friends or family online by inviting them to your child’s feed or you can print a memory book directly from your TreeRing feed that can be printed in a variety of types and designs.
TreeRing Memories focuses on helping moms with three specific problems:
Creating baby books. TreeRing Memories automatically groups photos that are added to the app and puts them into chronologically ordered, beautifully designed books that moms can print. Everything is editable and customizable, and, if a mom wants to create a book for a special event, like a first birthday party, she can do that, too.
Tracking milestones. Moms can swipe through dozens of memory prompts within seconds to recall special moments and memories, like an early ultrasound, how parents shared the good news, special visitors after birth, funny events, and memories of first experiences and holidays.
Sharing among family. While their are plenty of options for sharing photos, collecting photos other family members have taken and incorporating them in a book can be a struggle. Additionally, many parents are wary of over sharing photos of their child with their entire social networks. TreeRing Memories lets family members privately share photos and milestones with a more intimate group of followers, who can add content to be included in the memory books too.
TreeRing Memories is always FREE to use, with the printed books starting at $9.99. TreeRing is also offering new customers 50% OFF their first purchase! Download the app in the iTunes app store. For more information about TreeRing Memories, visit http://memories.treering.com/.
